A woman has been questioned by police after a body was found at the foot of cliffs at a Cornish beauty spot.

A 73-year-old woman from Westbury, Wiltshire, has been interviewed by police on suspicion of aiding or abetting a suicide, under The Suicide Act 1961.

The body of a 74-year-old woman, also believed to be from Wiltshire, was found at Hell's Mouth, Gwithian on Friday.

Police were called at around 4.25pm on Friday by a member of the public, who had spotted the body in the water, which was subsequently recovered by coastguards.

The family of the deceased woman has been informed and her death is not being treated as suspicious. A file is to be prepared for the coroner.

The woman who was arrested has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
